Inclusionary Housing Discussion

Last May, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced his intention to create a mandatory inclusionary zoning program that would require developers to include affordable housing units in market-rate residential developments.

Hear a distinguished panel of experts grapple with how to structure the program to produce affordable housing without suppressing overall development, and how the city can avoid legal pitfalls that mandatory inclusionary zoning measures have faced elsewhere.

PANELISTS:
Ben Beach ’02, Legal Director, Partnership for Working Families
Vicki Been ’83, Commissioner, New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development
David Karnovsky, Partner, Fried Frank
David Kramer, Principal, The Hudson Companies

MODERATOR:
Mark Willis, Executive Director, NYU Furman Center
